Historical Nonfiction, Biography, Fiction, Sufiism
As a teenager, I started writing short stories whenever I was impressed by something that touched my heart. After coming to America from Pakistan, I noticed how distorted were Islamic precepts presented to the West, mostly by Muslims themselves. So, delving deep into Islamic studies, I conducted research for Islamic literature free from centuries upon centuries of lies and distortions by hateful clerics. However, I couldn’t begin writing about Islam until I finished the historical sequels about the Moghul emperors of India.
That was my passion since college: trying to prove a point that when Muslim emperors were loving and generous, the Moghul empire flourished, and when, gradually in succession, they became brutal and bigoted, the Moghul empire crumbled.
In between my researching and writing about the Moghul emperors, I was inspired to write poetry, plays, and short stories. Inspiration comes from within, I guess, from nature, too, and from being deeply moved by social and political events.
